the environment and clean water standards is not antigrowth. in fact, it's projobs. when i recently toured the family-run trucking company in my district, they were not against truck safety standards. they do the right thing by their workers and they abide by safe driving rules. and they want regulations to ensure that others do the same. what they are against are new truck safety standards that hinder growth without actually making trucking any safer. smarter regulations should protect good businesses from bad actors. i'll give you another example. denny hudson, he runs sea coast bank, a small community bank in florida. like many small financial institutions, they weathered the financial crisis because they were not involved in the risky financial behavior. they expected mortgages to be repaid on time and they wanted the small businesses they supported to succeed. after the financial crisis of 2008, nearly took down the global economy, most people agreed that government regulators needed to better protect our financial system. but if new regulations keep community banks like sea coast fro
such as entities committed to protecting and preserving our nation's environment natural resources or the communities that could be directly impacted by such activities. to be clear, i strongly support the rights of industry to have an opportunity to provide comments on proposed rules. it fosters more informed quality rulemaking and benefits both business and broader society. indeed, that's why our current administrative procedures mandate that a public comment process be conducted to allow any individual or corporation to participate and provide input and feedback in an equal, fair and open process. that's current law. the amendment that congresswoman duckworth and i are proposing today would simply ensure that all participants in the rulemaking process be provided equal consultation rights with agencies. for example, as the ranking member, mr. cummings, noted earlier, if the u.s. department of agriculture were to have a rule in an effort to protect the health of everyday americans, our amendment would ensure that not only the agribusinesses but also food safety experts, children'

of the operating environment, the cultural differences and, of course, the native language capability. we do not believe the special operations variant of the chin yearbook would have fared any differently than extortion 17 on that night. there is no techniadvantage inherent in the special operations model that would have protected it from the rocket that downed the aircraft. we recognize, however, that these helicopters are vulnerable to regrenades. although there's currently no proven system to counter that particular weapon and that particular enemy tactic in the two and a half years since this tragic loss, we have fielded 24 different survivability and safety equipment upgrades on over 2,000 of our military aircraft. with the chinook ch-47 receiving as many as four of these individual up grades, and we continue our efforts, with the support of congress, to fund the research and development to develop the countermeasures that we would need to protect against the rpg. but i have to say no chances in technology or any change in the way we operate will bring back our fallen heros or's the pa

, senator, i agree that environment of low rates, low interest rates, especially when it prevails for a long time and we have had a long period of low interest rates, can give rise to behavior that poses threats to financial stability. and, therefore, we need to be looking at that very carefully. and we are doing so in a very thoroughfare way, i believe. there are a number of things that we are monitoring. measures of asset prices and whether or not they appear to be diverging from historical norms, namely it's hard but we're trying to spot any asset bubbles, price bubbles that might be emerging. we're looking at leverage which build up in leverage can be very dangerous to the financial system and pose stability risks. we're looking at trends in leverage. we're looking at credit growth to see whether or not that has potentially worrisome trends. in addition to that, we're looking particularly through our stress tests, at financial institutions and a low-interest rate environment. we have to worry about whether or not they're appropriately dealing with interest rate risk. we have been looking
and that they haven't been effective. what do you think that does to the environment in washington? >> it's hard to imagine the environment getting much worse. you know, it's more or less a stalemate in washington, because there's a little loosening up, perhaps. you have a significant portion of the republican party that can hold the entire republican party hostage. if the republican party can hold the legislative process hostage. unless there's a real change in attitudes, it's hard to see much happening. >> one of the ones that came in under the ask warren twitter hash tag, i know you are concerned about the wealth gap. are you supportive of raising the minimum wage and tieing it to inflation? >> i thought about the minimum wage for 60 years. i used to work at minimum wage. that got my attention first when i was getting 75 cents an hour. it really cuts both ways. you like to have people being paid more but you also want to have as many people employed as possible. that cuts both ways. i can argue either side of that. the one thing that does make sense is to increase the earned income tax credit
